The Unashamedly Unprofessional Automotive Podcast Crack open an ice cold beer and join Mitch, Matt, and Joseph as we drink beer and about cars. New episodes go live every Monday!








Pub (Lunch) With No Beer

Part two of our pre-WTAC recording session. When you're listening to this, we'll be somewhere between Sydney and Brisbane heading back from World Time Attack Challenge. We kick off this episode by talking, again, about the Cartastrophy365 podcast shoutout, then tangent onto talking about British television shows. Then, to mix things up, we actually talk about beer, albeit briefly. We then talk about why Ben joined us this week, and argue about soft-roaders. This one story took most of the...


The Pope Sailed on the Porsche Boat

We're back for episode 67! This week we're joined once again by Ben, and Rent-A-Crowd is back to his off-mic position. We start off with Chrysler being killed off in New Zealand, and their complete lack of 'damns' to give on their website and spell-check. Then we talk about Mazda confirming the return of the rotary, but not how we would have hoped. Porsche announces the 935, a retro-inspired track-only version of the GT2 RS; with custom bodywork and livery. The 935 splits the panel....


Full Stancenation

We start off our car podcast with a brief discussion about Bingo numbers and accents in movies. While Hairgel goes to fetch this week's beer, Mitch and Matt talk about the new Audi RS5 Sportsback due out in February 2019. The beer Joseph supplied us this week is Toohey's Old, and it is absolutely awful. We then talk about the crash rating for the new Suzuki Jimny. Joseph then brings up the now Officially Official (again) Toyota Supra, and Mitch talks about Porsche officially killing off...


I'm Surprised You Still Have A Face

We're back for episode 65! The first bit of news this week is Jesse's VW Jetta from 'The Fast And The Furious' has come up for sale for $99k. Then Joseph brings up Ferrari's new Monza SP1 and SP2's, based on the 812 Superfast. We then talk about the new BMW Z4's range being officially announced, then Matt confesses that he likes the Fiat 124 Abarth more than the ND Mazda MX5. Mitch then brings up news about the new Gazoo Racing Toyota Supra variant being confirmed for Australia, then Mitch...


Pancake And Flattened

It's a slow news week this week, but we still find a bit of stuff to talk about. This week we start off with some absolute bollocks before kicking off officially. Joseph kicks off the news this week with pricing for the HSV Camaro that has just been released and continues on to talk about Queensland Police cracking down on modified 4x4's, and Matt talks about what the current standards are for lifting a 4x4 in Qld. Mitch then talks about Lexus being the first to market with a camera side...


We're Not Opinionated

It's the original trio this week for episode 63. First this week, we talk about Ford and the 2020 Shelby Mustang GT500 dropping the manual from the options list. However, what really grind's Mitch's gears is the sloppy journalism from a particular online outlet. Mitch continues the bad news this week with the next Porsche allegedly putting a turbo on the next 911 GT3 (992)... Which turns into an argument. We then briefly answer a question from a listener as to what 'O/D Off' means. Joseph...


More Than You Can Afford, Pal

We kick off this week talking about Holden, and Holden's ridiculous number of SUV's being increased by yet another called the Acadia. We then talk about the size of new cars today, and that they're only getting bigger. We then talk about 'The Grand Tour' coming out with a video game, that preliminary reviews are saying is rubbish, much like DriveTribe. A Ferrari 250 GTO broke auction records at Pebble Beach for selling for $48million. This then transitions into a discussion about insurance,...


We're Sorry

We're back for episode 61, and we have a full house as this week we're joined by Rent-A-Crowd and Mr. Trewsy. It's a slow news week, but we start off with GM using Holden to focus on new automotive technologies (presumably to be used in other brand's cars). We talk about a beer supplied by Rent-A-Crowd, a beer called 'Blue Moon', and we agree that it is indeed terrible... But Mitch drinks them anyway. We then have an argument about the AMG GT and the Aston Marton DB11. Matt starts a topic...


Celine Dion - The One From Titanic

In spite of technical difficulties, we've powered through and we're back with episode 60. First up, we talk about the Camaro arriving in dealerships within a few weeks. Then we talk about an Aussie icon, the Ford Territory, making a return but not where you might expect it. Mitch then proves he is utterly incapable of doing accents. Joseph then talks about the highest sold vehicles for 2018, Ford's F-Truck being Number 1. We then talk about the youthification of Mercedes, specifically the...


General Hoonery

We're back for episode 59 this week, and our first topic this week is talking about Holden's worst sales month since 1948. We then talk about Hairgel's hair for some reason. Our next topic is about a British tourist racking up $47,000 worth of speeding fines in Dubai, which turns into a general discussion of fines and tickets. Then we talk about Seat wanting to compete with Alfa-Romeo and be known as the sportscar company of Volkswagen Automotive Group. We then have an argument about driving...


The Original OG Trio

It's just the original trio this week, which was a nice change of pace. We start off, after giving Hairgel some shade, with some conversation from Mitch, asking what's the point of non-RS and S Audi's. Joseph then talks about the X-Class Diesel pricing and specs being confirmed. We then play Matt's new game, 'Show Me What You Got', during which Matt talks about his Forester's bash-plate saving his bacon over the weekend. Then we briefly talk about our WTAC trip this year, before ending with...



This week, we're joined by the now regular guest Michael Trew, as well as Ben Sewell of the 'Pencil's Ballercast' podcast. This week we talk about the i30N Fastback Sedan, Lamborghini breaking Porsche's Nurburgring record by more than 2 seconds, the Ranger Raptor's anaemic engine, and comfortable daily hatchbacks, among our trademark banter and bollocks.


Raptor Light; I can't believe it's not Raptor

Where to start with this week's episode, it's a glorious blend of beer-induced insanity and brilliance, topped with a healthy serving of bollocks and a side of ridiculous. Sit down, strap in, 'cause It's a hell of a ride.


The Automotive Equivalent of Flat Earthing

Thanks to Mr. Michael Trew who returns again this week, we actually have some beer to talk about as he kindly supplied some beers. One of which was bad, the other was decent. The first topic this week is Trewsy talking about his MX5, which once again, is broken. Matt then gives a brief update on the Project Prado, which is coming along nicely. Mitch then talks about the Ariel Atom 4 to be certified for sale in Australia from 2019, and then we agree that driving a car and driving a car are...


Fisting Hard and Pulling

We start off by talking about the new 2019 Subaru Forester which Matt and Mitch both think is ugly, and is not a Forester. Then Mitch talks about the new Suzuki Jimny, which gets us off onto talking about 4x4's, and later we talk about it being confirmed for Australia in Q1 2019. We then talk about E10 vs E85, and fuels in general. We then talk about Matt breaking the lower timing belt cover off the Project Prado. Matt then asks if you'd spend the extra $4000 for a brand new Mazda CX3, vs a...


The Problem with Aston Martin

Sorry we're late this week, life stuff and things got in the way! We start off talking about motivational speakers, like Gary Vee, before we actually talk about anything relevant to the show... But what else is new? The first piece of news this week is about the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye. Then we talk about the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera which triggers Joseph hard, and we end up talking about James Bond actors. MG has said they're going back to their sportscar roots, by...


Paint It Black

We're a day late due to State of Origin was on Sunday night delaying the upload (we weren't going to skip on Origin, don't be ridiculous!). This week is the return of Mr. Michael Trewsy Trew, who hasn't been a guest on the show for almost a year. There's not much news this week, so we talk about our eBay Spec Project Prado, dubbed 'Toohey Ringpull', and what we've done to it. Matt then talks about selling his first car, a Subaru GC8 Impreza over the weekend. We then talk about Joseph's...


Screwed The Pooch

Somehow, we're made it to one year of episodes! We'd like to give all listeners a huge thank you, whether you've been here from the start, or only yesterday. Thank you for joining us on our bollocks and shenanigans. We start off by giving an update on each of our respective vehicles from when we started the podcast, Mitch and Matt have named the Project Prado, and Joel has turned into a bogan with his acquisition of a VT Commodore. Joseph talks about the aero updates to Formula 1 for the...


Lively Young Horse

We made it to episode 50, it's hard to believe we've come this far, and still no end in sight. The first thing we talk about is Mitch's mistake from Tuesday night. While it wasn't fatal, it wasn't fun for Mitch. We then talk about video games, specifically Forza Horizon 4 following the E3 2018 announcement. Mitch then talks about the 70 Years of Porsche event at Porsche Centre Brisbane on Saturday. Then Joseph talks about the Porsche 911 Speedster Concept, which is absolutely...


Cars, Beer, and RM's - The Lost Episode

Matt managed to recover episode 49 after GarageBand's complete and utter failure, which is why this week's episode is late. We start off with Matt talking about his knee surgery, otherwise his weak excuse to not drink for the next few months. To change things up, we actually talk about beer this week, and this week the beer is Kirin Megumi. Joseph then brings up the first news topic of the week, which is Dodge Ram's 1500 Rebel TRX, and somehow this transitions into a discussion between...
